The ballad about Lucia Manco of Lucca

28 апреля 2014 - принцАлександр
In the heart of the Tuscany under Italy's sun
Lies the town of Lucca, which is known to some
As Giacomo Puccini's birthplace, and the truth to be told,
He's Italian composer, one of the best in the world.

In the times of Medieval - far back in the past
Thrived the banking in Lucca and the art of silk craft ...
....
The legend has that in this very city
Lucia Manco lived so gorgeous, vane and pretty.

The Satan made her beauty last
On the condition that she must her lovers souls to Devil pass.
... For quite a while this deal worked well
- Men souls were going from her bed straight to the Hell.

For this long time she never fell in love, we trust
- Her drive was simply vanity and lust.
But even magic comes to undeterred end
- She met young man, to whom she loving heart of hers has lent.

She would not dare to corrupt his soul,
And lost her beauty just at once forever and for all.
He lost his love to her when she has lost her charms .
But to the worst, the Devil told him that he held his mother in his arms !
